Landlords - Legislation and Regulations


How can I ensure that I keep up to date with changing regulations and legislation?

The best way of keeping up to date is to join a landlords association which will keep you informed of any changes to legislation and regulations that you need to know about - contact the Cardiff Landlords Forum, the National Landlords Association, the Guild of Residential Landlords or the Residential Landlord Association for further information.


Is there any help available locally?

The Good Landlord Guide is a useful reference booklet providing information about all elements of the renting process. The Guide is updated annually.

This section of the Council also enforces housing standards and management practices in rented accommodation.You can contact them to find out about requirements in relation to room size, fire precautions, amenities etc.
